The Best Bars in DC for Celebrating St. Patrick's Day 2016

by Lanna Nguyen on Mar 14, 2016 in Roundups

You could spend this year’s St. Patrick’s Day drinking green beer…or you could branch out and sip chartreuse colored cocktails (because that sounds slightly more adult than the latter). Whichever path you choose come March 17, we’ve got you covered. Check out our picks for where to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day in DC.
 
American and Irish whiskeys will battle it out on St. Patrick’s Day weekend. From 1–3 PM on March 19, Beverage Director Scott Clime will lead a tasting of 10 whiskeys while sharing insights on the selection. The tasting includes a full luncheon buffet; $85 per person. (901 New York Ave, NW; 202-408-8848)
 
Celebrate “St. Pappy Day” at Bourbon Steak where they’ll be releasing Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve. Tapas will be paired with one-ounce pours of five members of the Reserve. The pairing of five pours and small plates is $255 per person. (2800 Pennsylvania Ave, NW; 202-944-2026)
 
All day long, enjoy $5 Tullamore Dew shots, $5 Sly Fox O’Reilly’s Stout, and $10 Irish style beer flights. Food specials include shepherd’s pie (braised leg of lamb, peas and carrots, duchess potatoes) and corned beef sandwich (house-sliced corned beef, pickled cabbage slaw). (901 9th St, NW; 202-644-9433)
 
Get to ready to rage at Irish Whiskey’s Beat the Clock Party on St. Patrick’s Day. From 11 AM–1 PM, enjoy $2 green beers and $3 Guinness, from 1–3 PM the prices goes up to $3 green beers and $4 Guinness, and from 3–5 PM, both green beer and Guinness are $5. In addition to the drink deals, there will be plenty of giveaways, traditional Irish food, music, and more. (1207 19th St, NW; 202-463-3010)
 
From 5 PM to close, Logan Tavern will be serving up Irish fare in the form of bangers and mash and Irish beef and beer stew. Guinness and Jameson will be flowing all night, but if you feel the need to shake up your drink order, try the Dublin Mule (Irish whiskey, fresh lime juice, ginger beer, mint spring) or the Stout Float (vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, whip cream, toasted hazelnut). Partake in St. Patty’s trivia for a chance to win gift card prizes. Regular happy hour will still be in effect from 4–7 PM. (1423 P St, NW; 202-332-3710)
 
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, Macon Bistro & Larder will be adding six limited-edition cocktails to the menu, all incorporating Green Chartreuse and Yellow Chartreuse. The cocktails will be divided into two groups: Tried and True and New School. They’ll be available through St. Patrick’s Day from March 17–20. (5520 Connecticut Ave, NW; 202-248-7807)
 
Why celebrate for just one day when you can celebrate the whole week? At Ri Ra take part in the weeklong festivities which include special happy hours (specific days feature Bushmills, Jameson, Knappogue Castle, and Guinness) and live music. The celebration starts March 13 and leads up to the big day. (3125 M St, NW; 202-751-2111)
 
Head to the metro-inspired eatery for $5 wings and $5 green beers from 4–7 PM. (100 Florida Ave, NE; 202-652-1844)
 
Villain & Saint
Live Irish music and Irish dancing abound at Villain & Saint on St. Patrick’s Day. Doors open at 4 PM with Irish-acoustic kicking off the entertainment. Food specials include pork belly and cabbage, sausages, and Irish stew. $5 cover starting at 4 PM, $12 cover after 7:30 PM. (7141 Wisconsin Ave, Bethesda; 240-800-4700)
